  Re: [aroid-l] How many leaves??

Some weeks ago, we observed on one of our Am. bulbifer
that a second petiole emerged about 4 cm above the soil
from the existing petiole. Later, this second petiole broadened
downwards, as shown on the picture. The arrow indicates
the original emerging point. Hence branching of petioles is
possible within the genus Amorphophallus and, as Wilbert
wrote to us, is also known e.g. from A. paeoniifolius and
A. glossophyllus.
